Moussa Sissoko is allegedly being ‘fought over’ by Real Madrid and Barcelona.

There are transfer stories and then there are…transfer stories!

The claims have been made by Spanish media organisation Don Balon.

They say that despite his pathetic showing for Tottenham, Real Madrid are going to try and hijack Barcelona’s bid for Moussa Sissoko.

AC Milan are also supposedly keen on taking the midfielder who has only started one Premier League match since December.

To an extent you can believe the Serie A club potentially being interested, they can finish no higher than sixth this season and are 25 points behind Juventus at the top.

AC Milan now have money to spend through wealthy backers and are desperate to revive past glories, so will be trying to persuade any vaguely credible player to join them.

As for Real Madrid and Barcelona though, it is surely a joke to imagine them giving any thought at all to a player who has done nothing to suggest he is good enough for them.

Moussa Sissoko having coasted through 95% of his time at Newcastle after an impressive opening few months, then proving an absolute disaster for Tottenham after they wasted £30m on him.

Don Balon claim that Real Madrid and Zinedine Zidane tried to buy Sissoko last summer…well if that had been the case, he’d have been off there like a shot.

No doubt the next Don Balon exclusive will see Real Madrid and Barcelona fighting it out over Alan Pardew as their next manager…

    Yeah, imagine Moussa playing tiki-taka! He might have a chance of keeping posession if they play with a bag of cement that`s gone off. “Get out of the way, Christiano, I`m taking this one”. Ha ha ha ha ……….

  • Rich Lawson

    Quite simply beyond belief,are you sure his agent isn’t called Don Balon ?

  • Porciestreet

    Yeh….April fools day right………..!

  • Tino11

    What the article fails to mention is that the clubs want to sign him as a toilet attendant, he will give you a spray of aftershave and some chewer for €2.

    • Rich Lawson

      He could do that on the Quayside.

  • Polarboy

    Clearly the work of his agent. It’s pathetic and embarrassing.

  • Hughie_Gallacher

    Wenger will gazump them both with a last minute offer.

  • Wor Monga

    …You couldn’t make this kind of rubbish up could you?…oh, hang on a minute…somebody just has!!!

  • Andy Mac

    Tell you what Jeff, thats unbelievable 😂

  • GToon

    Can’t wait for him to declare his undying love for all three teams and then say how he needs to play in the champions league. But and it is a big but. I really want to see him play against us next season. It will be hilarious.

  • Kneebotherm8

    Iniesta will be shaking in his boots at the thought of losing his place to this superstar.

  • Taz

  • Albert Stubbins

    Must have the most persuasive agent in football history- whoever he his he should use his miraculous talents to further the good of humanity and ask them all to stop fighting in the middle east!!
